Kiri is a passionate yoga teacher, massage therapist, and reiki practitioner. Following the completion of her 200YTT in February 2014, she began teaching immediately while studying psychology at the University of Auckland. Kiri completed her reiki certification in 2015, completed a certificate of massage therapy at Wellpark College of Natural Therapies in 2017, and completed her psychology degree in 2019. In addition to teaching full time at Auckland’s top yoga studios, she has taught at festivals and retreats across New Zealand over the past six years. Her study of psychology, yoga, massage, reiki, and the natural world alongside her personal practice have provided a deep understanding of Eastern and Western Modalities of healing and the mind/body connection.
Kiri initially trained in traditional Sattyananda lineage hatha yoga and later completed a yin teacher training with world renowned yoga teacher Jo Phee. She now teaches hatha, yin, and embodied vinyasa flow classes. Her classes have a dance like quality and encourage people to move with their own internal rhythm. Kiri is passionate that yoga is for everyone and provides modifications for all bodies and levels of practice. She firmly believes that yoga provides others with the tools they have to heal themselves.
